This little recipe I very quickly whipped up today turned out so delicious (if I dare say so myself, haha) that I HAD to share! If you’re a busy mum like me, juggling work and family life, these super quick and easy recipes are truly a lifesaver! Plus, the kids loved it – so that’s a plus! My kids are very fussy when it comes to their veggies, but they somehow don’t mind beans and brocolli (or brocollini) so I use these greens pretty often in my cooking. This sticky stirfry would go really well with just plain steamed rice, although today I served it with couscous – because they are super easy to make, just add hot water, cover and ready in 2 minutes!
One bunch of brocollini, chopped in half
Approx. 150g green beans
4 strips of pork belly, sliced into small bite sized pieces
4-5 garlic cloves, crushed
2-3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Heat vegetable oil in wok, stirfry garlic and pork belly until the meat is slightly browning. Add greens and splash in sweet chilli sauce and oyster sauce. Stirfry for another 5-8 minutes until greens are reasonably softened yet still slightly crunchy (careful not to let it get too soft and soggy) and sauce caramelizes and making the meat look all glossy and sticky.
Serve with steamed rice or cous cous.
